Although Punk admitted going to the pub to eat fish and chips with a friend, he vehemently denied drinking any alcohol.

The video footage wasn't the only thing Jericho revealed on Raw. He announced that he would be facing CM Punk for his title at Extreme Rules in a Chicago Street Fight. The news seemed to delight Punk, who is eager to go toe-to-toe with Jericho in his own hometown in front of family and friends ( MATCH PREVIEW).

Is his straight-edge lifestyle a thing of the past? Has Jericho uncovered an ugly truth that Punk is not ready to admit? Who is telling the truth?

Look for answers on next week's special three-hour Raw SuperShow starting at 8/7 CT on USA Network.
